- I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

Please Lord...use my insanity for good......
The top pic is what I get.....
The bottom pic is what I want.....
Did I ever tell you about my amazing BLACK thumb?
How many times I have told my children that they should be grateful to the Good Lord above that I'm not the one who has to grow all their food!?
Now...a few months back I came across an offer for free gardening seeds....
oh how I LONG to be able to grow beautiful gardens.
OH how I have TRIED and spent WAY too much to have a beautiful garden.
I say that I am the "hospice" of plants - my home is where they go to die.
I actually feel BADLY when I buy beautiful healthy plants because I KNOW it's only a matter of time.....poor things.
Anyways..back to my story about the seeds....
All I had to do was pay the shipping and handling fee.
So I think...."Hey $20 isn't a lot to ask if you're getting a lot of free seeds - I spend that on Gurneys or Burpee catalog orders in a heartbeat!"
okay..now ....think with me...what does a pack of seeds weigh...
virtually NOTHING right?

PACKS OF SEEDS LATER.....
My husband is rolling on the floor laughing because:
A. I am NOT the person who should order seeds
B. I have NO idea the size of the box he signed for only to realize they are seeds
C. We live on a lot (a small lot in the southernmost part of "nothing grows here" Florida)
So recently in the blogs I follow....I have seen where people are starting to plan their spring gardens.
I am now mailing off packs of gardening seeds to them :)
I pray that the Lord uses my insanity for good :)
That the seeds bless many many families.
That the few packs I attempt to grow - WILL grow! :)
Seriously - if you want some seeds - please let me know - I'll zip you off a mix of seeds!
I just sent off grab-bags of them to 6 families today :)
If you get an email from me asking if you want seeds - seriously - take me up on the offer :)
Please God...bless them all with abundance...
You just never know where God will send you blessings from huh?!
With all my heart~
